“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2014

I recently stayed in the Sanderson Hotel with my daughter …. its FANTASTIC! The service is brilliant the rooms are very modern but sooooooo relaxing, no clutter. Fans of the more traditional hotel might struggle… but give it a go… you won't be disappointed. We had dinner in the restaurant on our first night - the food is amazing probably the best asian style food I have ever eaten. The bar is lively but so sophisticated, great for people watching. Our breakfast the following morning was to die for…how can french toast and berries / pancakes with blueberries taste so good. Oh I nearly forgot to mention the spa its like a little piece of heaven. Superb location for theatre and shopping.

We are definitely coming back to stay and will be recommending the restaurant to all our friends.

Stayed here with my partner on the 18/01 as we were going out in London for our anniversary. On arrival at the hotel our room was not ready yet so the man on reception took us to the bar for some complimentary drinks which was nice. The decor when you entered the hotel really is amazing, modern and cool. The long bar is fantastic and the cocktails were really nice. We stayed in one of the deluxe rooms which was simply stunning. Never had to FaceTime people before to show them how cool a room was in a hotel. Needed an iron so called down to house keeping, had it in about 30 seconds at the door. This is good as have been to hotels where stuff like that takes ages. On our way out we went to the purple residents only bar, this was fantastic. Didn't really see anything that I liked on the cocktails menu in here but the waitress simply asked what I liked and made one for me. Annoyingly we didn't get a chance to use the spa which we will be doing next time we stay.

Overall a fantastic hotel, read reviews about staff 'looking cool but not being helpful' and have to say thats simply crap. All the staff were so polite and helpful to us throughout the whole stay. Best hotel I've stayed at and will be back again next time I'm in london.

Room Tip: The deluxe room was really spacious the bed was huge and the free standing bath was awesome. We stay...

Back to the Sanderson because it's simply lovely.
This time we took advantage of the upgrades on offer at check - in and got a better room and a package to include breakfast.
Our stay was made more the relaxing as we enjoyed breakfast in bed a couple of times. The food is delicious
This is a cool and stylish hotel which modern art/design fans will love. I always imagine that those seeking a more traditional base would not appreciate its styling ( glass walls and sheer drapes)
The Sanderson is well located for trips into the West End as it is just off Oxford Street.
We ate in the restaurant for breakfast one morning and this was let down by service. This hotel has a lot of staff but things like toast or more coffee take an age to appear
We enjoyed drinks in The Purple Bar and Long Bar on NYE which is great for people watching and posing!
Staff are always friendly and welcoming

Room Tip: Ask about upgrade packages. Our deal got us breakfast in bed which was better than our experience in...

Visited for 2 nights at the weekend to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday, i mentioned this when i booked and not only did they upgrade our room but the lovely Linxi had arranged for a bottle of champagne to be in our room when we arrived.....a very nice touch. The room was beautiful! a perfect mix of classy elegance with some quirkiness thrown in for good measure. I would highly recommend a visit to the Purple Bar, excellent cocktails made by a guy who really knew what he was doing. The staff at the hotel were what stood out the most, everyone was friendly and couldn't do enough for us, they made our stay really enjoyable and i would happily stay there again.

Fantastic Service as soon as we walked into the Hotel...Was warmly greeted by JJ who was able to offer a fantastic deal on an upgrade...The room was spacious with its own small terrace and well worth the extra cost.The staff in the hotel were very helpful and friendly...The facilities are great and the Bars were buzzing in the evening...The venue is perfectly located for Oxford and Regent Street shopping and we will definitely be staying again.

Room Tip: If budget allows then go for a room with terrace on the 6th floor...

The Sanderson was a perfect hotel for our London visit. Walking distance from Oxford Street, Regent Street, Theatres and top Restaurants. Their in house bar had a wonderful vibe and their Mad Hatters afternoon Tea was an experience not to miss!
The staff were warm and friendly and the accommodation was some of the finest I have had in London.
Can't wait to return

Haven't got a bad word to stay about the hotel, all the staff were attentive, friendly and efficient. Quality of room service was excellent - was forced to use it as my husband had a stomach bug, thankfully for him the room was very comfortable, this didn't spoil our weekend completely but we couldn't take advantage of the hotel restaurant and facilities as we would normally have done! Hotel car made a pleasant change to a cab and was not expensive. Jo J on reception made check out a pleasure! Would love to return to make proper use of all the hotel has to offer.

A lavish "Urban Spa" in the heart of London’s West End, Sanderson offers a retreat from the bustle of the city into a world of fantasy and wellbeing.
